Please Scotland, Don’t Do It!

Wallpaper-braveheart-32189752-1920-1080Tomorrow comes the big vote for or against Scottish independence.

I’ll admit to knowing almost nothing about Scotland and even less about its politics, but Scottish independence doesn’t seem like a good idea to me.

I mean, I keep asking myself how Scotland will support itself and I come up with tourism and scotch. And keeping the world blotto and having annual Bay City Rollers reunions somehow doesn’t seem enough.

You know, even Ireland built DeLoreans in the seventies. You guys don’t even really have shipbuilding any more. Or know what currency you’re going to use. The rest of the British Isles use the Euro and they can always fall back on the pound sterling, but what are you guys going to do?

Maybe you can sell off Balmoral to some American billionaire but in the end he’ll just dismantle it brick-by-brick and rebuild it in Lake Havasu.

And America cannot afford to support another Third World country. Maybe if you guys joined the Islamic jihad our government might find a way to slip you a few bucks, but short of that… nope, can’t think of a thing.

Don’t get me wrong, Scotland, we Americans want only the best for you. Okay, the Queen wears hideous hats but is it really all that bad?

Don’t just fall for the old ALBA GU BRÀTH! line; it may be passionate but it’s not that simple. You can’t just paint your faces and leave the rest to Mel Gibson.

In the end your politicians may not be any better than the Brits anyway; they’ll probably just raise your taxes and send your hard-earned… well, whatever currency you decide on, to places like Burkina Faso.

I keep thinking of ways you guys can turn a buck off of dead poets but so far nothing.

So chose wisely on Voting Day Scotland.

    The people of Scotland will vote for what is their best interests regardless of the scare tactics and begging of outsiders to retain the Union. Scotland in the past has been independent, it has vast amounts of industry and resources that could justify it becoming successful as a nation. Scotland generates more tax than the English do for London, and it has oil. Iceland is smaller than Scotland yet it is reasonably successful despite a recent banking crisis.

      Oh, yes, I see your point. Scottish petroleum is soaring to pre-1970 levels; at this rate they may be able to guarantee a few Isuzu owners regular oil changes by 2025. In comparison to the world’s petroleum producers—Russia, Saudi Arabia, U.S., Iran, China, Canada and Iraq—Scotland has a mere trickle of oil. It hasn’t even been able to keep up with the needs of the UK without Russian and Iranian imports. UK brings in a mere $6 bil annually from Scot petroleum, and future production is unpredictable. Just where are the Scots supposed to get the financing to reboot these ‘vast amounts’ of industry? And how many Love Boats will it take to sustain a nation? In case you haven’t noticed the world isn’t suffering from a dearth of shipbuilders.

        Scotland has the blessing of diversity, which means even if oil runs out it has other means of income. Scotland has the oil and England does not. Oil can be used for Scotlands own domestic needs without need of exporting it, or relying on oil imports.

        Oh bullsh*t. Not one credible economic estimate suggests anything of the sort. Scotland receives far more from Westminster than it concedes. Whenever in history have a gaggle of European lefties created jobs? And who will they run to when they’re out of cash? You are right about one thing: Scotland will do as it wishes, but their politicians will be the only winners.

    I say they should go for it a heavy dose of “you made your bed now lie in it” would be good for every nation even if it’s an unmitigated disaster.
